Call for ContributionsKategorie: Veranstaltungen
The Journal of Empirical Research on Human Research Ethics (JERHRE) invites contributions to a forthcoming special issue on Research ethics in empirical ethics studies: Case studies and commentaries. Dr Sabine Wöhlke and Prof Dr Silke Schicktanz (both from University Medical Centre, Göttingen) will serve as Guest Editors for the special issue.
Empirical studies on aspects of medicine and health care enjoy a long scientific tradition. Out of this tradition, many specialties have emerged in researching aspects of health-related research, such as medical sociology or medical anthropology. However, questions focussing on research ethics are a more recent phenomenon in human research. The last decade has seen an exponential increase in empirical-ethical studies in bioethics more broadly and research ethics specifically.
